Hot In The Summer Sun 5K Recap

I’m pretty sure I need to move to Atlanta. I spend more time there on the weekends then where I live. A lot of the races that we have been interested in this Summer have all been in or around Atlanta. We ran another 5K in Kennesaw Saturday for Five Star NTP called the Hot Fun In The Summer Sun 5K. One of the cool things about Five Star is they give finishers medals to all participants. I finished 2nd in my age group so I scored double medals. The course had one long hill towards the finish line but I have noticed lately, that hills do not bother me much anymore. I used to dread seeing a hill but now I don’t pay too much attention to them. I think its because I see a hill as a challenge, and I really like challenges.


I haven’t been running lately because I spend most of my time doing full body training. I can tell I am getting stronger, even with running. The heat bothers me, which kills my clock time but I noticed the last few times I have ran that I have not struggled as much.

Next weekend, I won’t be able to run because I have my one Saturday a month day long Yoga training class. I certainly hope to see everyone at the Summers End 5K in Winder August 12th, I am really looking forward to that race. I hope to go for my third straight year of getting a train trophy!

Now that summer is coming to a close and Fall is fast approaching, I have got to get ready for the next five months of craziness. There is a lot of neat stuff happening and lots of new adventures coming up so stay tuned!
